    Two questions for a previous attendee of WordCamp US: "Tips For First Time WCUS Attendees" https://2016.us.wordcamp.org/2016/11/23/tips-for-first-time-wcus-attendees/ mentions to bring an extra bag.

    1) Is a backpack OK, or is that a bit large?

    2) Does it make sense to bring something like a small laptop, or is it just something else to cart around?

      I attended last year—there were a lot of backpacks. You'll need something to put your swag in. 2. I offer you think about the questions below and you'll find your answer. If no—you'll just be carrying it around. IMHO

      Are you working on a WP site you want to access while at WC? Do you want to test something you may learn in a workshop? Is there an issue you'd like help with on your WP website? Will you use it to take notes?

      Yup; lots of backpacks (including mine). And lots of people with small laptops or whatever (not including me). I thought it was rather amusing that as the day went on, more and more people were sitting by the power outlets.

    I would highly prefer to not drive in Philadelphia or taking the PATCO line by myself. Is anybody else interested in meeting somewhere outside Philadelphia? (I'm only interested in the Friday and Saturday sessions. I'd also go to the after party on Saturday night https://2016.us.wordcamp.org/2016/10/21/wcus-after-party/ , but if nobody else is willing to go, that is OK.)

      At this point, I'm planning on taking PATCO from Wood Crest Station (in Cherry Hill, off I-295 exit 31) https://www.ridepatco....­ .
